Poster promoting the March 20 2019 special meeting to endorse candidatesSpecial Meeting of the Central Committee – March 20th, 2019

Local elections, for school boards, park district boards, and other special boards are an exciting way to shape the policies that affect us and our children. We hope to see many of you at this special endorsement meeting where we can vote to give our endorsement to the May 2019 election local candidates that best exemplify our values.

The only business we will consider at this special meeting is the endorsements.

Where:

  • Portland Community College Willow Creek Campus
    241 SW Edgeway Dr, Hillsboro, OR 97006

When:

  • Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 7pm – 9pm (credentialling opens at 6:30pm)

Why are we having this special meeting?

As you know, our February Central Committee meeting had to be canceled due to the college campus where we meet closing from snow and ice. If we waited until our March 27th Central Committee meeting to vote on local candidate endorsements, it will be too late for those candidates to list us as an endorser in the voter pamphlet!

After receiving feedback from over 100 PCP’s and consulting with many other party leaders, it was loud and clear from our members that we should hold this special meeting to get those endorsements done before the deadline.

In line with the party rules, we will also meet for our regular March meeting the next week, on March 27, 2019.
